Ah right, I do it all on rotery. Definitely cheaper your way, how much do you charge per unit? I charge £30 and costs me on average £5.

Nice...must be good to not have the lights in situ:) I never feel like I have got to the edges properly.

Here's one of my efforts. I am still waiting for a really yellow set of lights for the before pics though.

I'm thinking of putting this, or similar, as an ad in the local paper.

Good idea. I was thinking of offering this service to my local MOT centres. They will probably want there palms crossing mind.

Just had a chat with a friend of mine who runs a large Kwik-Fit type garage. They had two fails mots this week because of dull headlights. He will now be offering my services to his customers at £50 and I'm to bill the garage £30. Sounds cheep but for about 30 minuets work I can live with it. He did say they don't need to be absolutely perfect, just good enough to pass. Time to get some flyers printed for all the other mot places round here.

I seem to be getting more and more headlamp enquiries. I have two sets to do on Monday!

Knocked up some A5 posters, when I get chance I'll be going around the garages.
